Quick question though on one of your mods. The AAC v2.0 Scanner. Does it react to music? Do you know how this works? Does it have to hook to the audio somehow? I have this awesome bass beat I generated (I make music for fun), and think it would look awesome if the sensor faded to the beat. Was wondering how this would work.

Scratch that, I have a bunch of questions for you. Hope you dont mind.

1.) The above question
2.) I'm new to the camaro scene. Is there a good place to get the RS and 2LT badges? The car Im looking at doesnt have any RS badge besides the one on the front grill and back.
3.) Where did you get your engine cover it. Its awesome!
4.) Is that a custom cupholder you have? Was it hard to install?

I plan on first getting lighting mods (foot area, interior lights, the scanner), getting RS badges, Chrome replacements, the small interior/cosmetic stuff, etc. Then definitely a CAI, followed by Exhaust system. Then all else comes after :P



no i do not mine questions



1( I do not know if you can hook up the scaner to the audio system.That would look cool i will post a vid of my 2 scaners
2(You can order the rs badages from the dealer and they go on using 3m tape. The 2LT badage i got from www.emblempros.com
3(Enigne cover i got from my dealer you can get them online for cheap now and it is painted red and i added the camaro rs on the front of it
4(the cup holder is not custom infact i ordered a new billet chrome cup holder that one was just plastic and went on by using 3m tape

Thanks for the questions

lol awesome. i dont know if you caught my other thread on detailing, washing, and waxing. But that was EXACTLY what I was thinking of next. I want to wash and wax it myself, was kind of curious as to what to use and how to do it, etc. Im not sure if the previous owner didn't wax it as much so im sure itll need it.

defintely would like something that would catch eyes, it would help me justify this purchase in my mind ^^

and damn thats a lot of cleaners! I guess I'll have to stock up. I've read that Adams and Zaino are the best and its a topic overly discussed but never answered. Trying to decide which to go with.

I would go with adams they give you a discount and their stuff is great. First i would do a clay bar it makes the paint feel like glass and givs it a nice shine then i would go with a polish (blue bottle in pic) And then a buttery wax. And your camaro will look brand new.

thanks!! Just sent in an order online. Hope it gets shipped out tomorrow. A DIY video would definitely be awesome. I dont think there's any videos out there for scanners. Definitely helpful.

Random question. Do you use a machine polisher or do you wax and polish by hand

by hand?! And you still get good results? Wow, I might go that way to save a little money on Adams when I order that tomorrow. Sent you a pm regarding that


And from AAC, I got almost everything BUT the halos. Decided to wait on that to save a little money. AAC has a group buy for those ending on February 28th, I'm going to do that.

All in all, I got:
-Afterburner Taillight
-Flexible LED Strip for Cupholder (still figuring this out.. :?)
-Interior Blue LED Kit
-Ambient Blue Footwell Lighting
-Camaro Concept Sidemarkers
-Plasma DRL Bulbs with DRL harness
-RGB Scanner 22"
-License Plate LED
-2 Blue Flush Switches
-Seperate Cool White Dome Light in case blue doesnt work out

Everything comes in Friday, so your DIY videos will come in handy for when my adams stuff comes in and whenever I decide to hookup my scanner. Im planning to hookup everything but my scanner this weekend (will probably wait on a DIY from you on that)

Thanks again!

Mine arrive today! (aac items) Got my camaro this weekend and it looks awesome. I'll see If I can find a camera to get pics.

Only drawback is I might have to remove the previous owners 5% tint to get it inspected :/

Were the bulbs hard to install? How long did it take
